Are you looking for an opportunity to showcase your unique ability to lead cultural change within an organisation? Do you understand the importance of influencing positive behaviour to help achieve a successful health and safety programme?
Are you able to communicate a compelling health and safety vision that inspires people to move forward with the organisation? Then read on!
This is a Health and Safety leadership role. We are looking for an individual that can lead the organisational health and safety management systems.
In other words, be the architect of health and safety, not just a technical expert.
People work at Wellington Water because they want to make a difference, and that means you will be helping to look after our most precious assets : water, human health and welfare, and the environment so our communities can prosper.
Wellington Water knows that a great values-driven organisation like ours means we can be a trusted adviser to councils and deliver great outcomes.
We also know what a big impact our health and safety culture has on how successful we are in this regard.
Over the past few years we have built up our health and safety programme; our systems and processes are sound, our people take health and safety seriously and our suppliers and contractors know they can rely on us to do the right thing when it comes to safety and wellbeing.
We need you to take us further, to help the organisation embed our H&S vision work. You will use risk assessments and company strategy to design and develop "the way forward".
You will lead a "Safety vs Emergency" approach by coaching people into being courageous in changing habits and promoting a positive health and safety environment.
While you will bring with you a unique approach, it's expected that to be successful this may involve; training, education programmes, regular communication and assistance to improve quality and safety of daily business.
Your previous experience may have been in the public or private sector. Wherever you have come from you will bring with you a strong foundation of health and safety knowledge, specifically with regards to the new Health & Safety Act.
With the support of internal champions and supplier partnerships, your aim will be to continue the maturity and growth of our practices here at Wellington Water.
You will be comfortable writing management and governance (Board) reports, managing people and influencing across the organisation.
